It is highly recommended, when planning inter-state travel, to get an E-ZPass unit.
This device attaches to your windshield and automatically, electronically pays your tolls, charging your E-ZPass account.
It works from Virginia thru New York on the East Coast. In addition to removing the need for change, you can also get through quicker, using the special purple E-ZPass only lanes at the toll lanes.
Notes: If you rent a car through one of the on-line travel sites in advance, or use a value rental car agency (like Rent-A-Wreck), you can get a nice car for very affordable rates. Many agencies have terminals at the major airports, as well, so you can pick them up and drop them off at the airport, without hassle. Also, some of the companies will actually come and pick you up.
Also, explicitly ask about discounts for which you might be eligible. Sometimes car rates may be cheaper by the week verus daily. Remember - you don't need to buy the rental car's insurance, assuming you have your own coverage. It transfers to the rental car. Try to get make sure you get unlimited mileage.
